Phil and Christine Hatfield and JSM Equine's ARISTON (Flatter), a $500,000 FTSAUG yearling, debuts for trainer Ian Wilkes.

The gray colt is out of a full-sister to Grade I winner Tell a Kelly (Tapit). Fellow Shadwell homebred Taraashoq (Curlin) is entered for main-track only. The unraced colt is a son of Grade I winner Lear's Princess (Lear Fan). TJCIS PPs
